Born in Ethiopia, raised in Brooklyn and rooted in San Francisco, Meklit Hadero’s uniquely eclectic sound, a joyful blend of jazz, hip-hop, folk, indie rock and more, is imbued with poetry and a haunting grace. A proudly collaborative musical in-betweener, Meklit celebrates the newness of life and the hyphens that bring us together. As a cultural activist, this TED senior fellow and co-founder of the Nile Project (presented at The Clarice in 2015), breathes a fresh, urgent and worldly spirit into jazz.
